2016 Hagafen Merlot
Estate Napa Valley
Our lovely 2016 vintage aromatics are enough to keep you satisfied with only your nose in the glass. Overflowing with wild strawberry, blue and black berries, Lincoln rose, and just a tease of lilac- this wine continues to delight. Found amidst the fruit and florals are hints of light pepper and caramel. Moving into the soft, round, velvety mouth we find bright tart raspberry jam balanced with soft oak and smooth tannins. This Merlot will make you question why you ever thought badly of this noble varietal.
